What's the Buzz on

Smart Grids?
CASE STUDY

Smart Grid
Using Digital
technology to deliver
electricity
from
suppliers
to
consumers.

Smart Grid (Contd.)


Allow both consumers and energy companies

to make more intelligent decisions regarding


energy consumption and production.

Advantages of Smart Gids


(Contd.)
Their ability to detect sources of power
outages more quickly and precisely at the
individual household level.

Smart Technology in Different


Countries
in Asia continent
China, south Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia are trying to

implement smart technology in their power sector.


Our neighborhood country India, has already started

flagship programs
to implement such technology in 14
states

U.S & U.K smart technologies are first experimented.

It has to be installed, virtually everywhere.


The creation of an intuitive end-user interface.
High costs
Customers perspective. (intrusive, regulation
of usage inside homes, up front costs, cyber
attacks, privacy implications, boost of energy
rate)

Consumers Reaction to Smart


Grids

How smart grid does differ from


existing infrastruture
Use of high information technology

Provide information to both


energy suppliers & consumers

How smart grid does differ from


existing infrastruture (Contd.)
Improved decisions making
Reduce power wastage
Lower costs & pollution
Increased employment opportunities

The issues that should be deemed in


developing a smart grid

Management Issues
Convince consumers to switch over to the

smart grid system


Shown how the utilization of the smart grid

will benefit

Management Issues (Contd.)


Provide information feedback efficiently
consumers to overcoming the intrusive

feelings
Develop privacy system of consumers

Organization Issues
Operating budgets & profits

Implementation of appropriate

structure

Technology
Networks and switches for power management.
Sensor and monitoring devices to track energy

usage and distribution trends.


Systems to provide energy suppliers and
consumers with usage data.
Communications systems to relay data along
the entire energy supply system.
Systems linked to programmable appliances to
run them when energy is least costly.

Using websites & mobile phones to monitor

their energy usage

I think the Challenges that can


hamper to the development of smart
grid as next

Challenges behind
Development
Expensive technology

Installing two-way meters

Non-user
friendly
Dashboard

Challenges behind
Development(Contd.)
Retrofitting infrastructure
Potential economic impact on

energy companies
Probability of cyber attack and

loss of privacy
Intrusiveness and confusing

about technology

The different areas of infrastructure


the smart grid can contribute as next

Smart Water Grid

A smart meter is a normal water meter

connected to a data logger that allows for the


continuous monitoring of water consumption.
Smart water system
Uses of smart water meters together with the

latest technologies
Provides real time data to better monitor water
usage, distribution and problems such as
leakage.

Functions of Smart Water


Meter
Monitor water flows much like electric usage
Turn off lawn sprinklers during the heat of the day or based

on predetermined schedules

Use monitors in lawns and around plants and shrubs to

prevent over- or under-watering


Monitor evaporation rates
Monitor pools, fountains, and other water features for usage

Benefits of Smart Water Meter


More efficient operations

Customer service

Environment
Resilience
Flexibility
Affordability

I think my home and community must be a


part of smart grids system because

Why smart grid in family &


community level
Ensure transparent billing system
Help to reduce costs of unnecessary power
Help the authority to make proper distribution

of resources
Help to detect the amount of power
contributed by family and communities in the
national grid
Reduce tension of power users regarding
ghostly bill expenses
Besides proper distribution of power ensure
healthy environment

Though have challenges its really

smarter

Recommendations &
Conclusion
Have to reduce costs of related technologies by

further extensive research


Technology investments should pursue

complementary assets
Develop user friendly technology
Need help of federal government & private sectors
Promote Mass awareness
